The Glow

trembling from the cool night air
he awoke with a start
confused, his mind started to
reassemble a sense of where he was
a forest surely, and oh yes,
on a walk in the late afternoon heat,
tired, he laid down just to rest
an effortless sleep
followed his slowing mind.

penetrating the darkness
a faint light, a glow
voices quietly chanting
something unfamiliar
something comforting
he rose and stumbled
towards it
he was not alone
small and not-small animals
drawn to this, this, he wasn’t sure
but he did know his soul wouldn’t
be complete without …
